Walking and Talking with . . . Kate DiCamillo!

Recently I hosted a Literary Salon where an attendee asked at the end whether or not it was true that Kate DiCamillo deleted every draft she wrote, right after finishing it, so that she could rewrite it again.  As it turns out, this isn’t exactly the case, but it did lead a lot of us to wonder how Kate writes in general.  A secret signal must have been sent through the ether because not three days later I got word from author Steve Sheinkin that he had a new Walking and Talking feature to present.  And its subject?  Kate DiCamillo!  Enjoy, folks.  All shall be revealed:

Thanks yet once more to Steve for allowing me to show off his fantastic comics.  For previous entries in the “Walking and Talking” series, please be sure to check out the following:

  1. My two favorite authors, walking and talking… and with such author-ly insight!

    I swoon for the second time in as many days reading your blog, Besty.

  2. “The thing is to not panic.” Going up over my desk.

  3. It’s kind of like a bit of sublime fell right out of my computer when I found this.
